Riverfront makeover focus on views, lifestyle and carparking
Hawthorne Modern Home Renovation
This unique Hawthorne property is located on a sloping block of land which boasts an impressive Brisbane river frontage. Our renovation designs aimed to modernise the home, extend its square footage, increase its available parking, and significantly improve its liveability. In particular, our designs revolved around ensuring that the new layout of the home capitalised on the breathtaking views the property has to offer.
To achieve this, we plan to re-develop and expand the living areas of the home as well as install a new covered deck at the rear of the house.
By redeveloping the living room in this way, we will create a large open-plan kitchen/living/dining area which will significantly open up the flow of the interior of the home. What’s more, lining the walls of this space with full-height windows will also guarantee that our clients are continually able to enjoy wide-ranging, uninterrupted views of the Brisbane River.
This area will make an ideal space for entertaining guests. Large sliding stacker doors will lead out of this open-plan living space to the new deck and will provide our clients and their guests with easy access to the backyard, pavilion and pontoon.
A new study-guest room will be built on the first floor above the current stairwell. Large windows will also frame this versatile room so that visiting friends and family can enjoy the picturesque views overlooking the river and city. When this room is occupied, our clients will still be able to access a functional workspace through a new small study nook situated on the ground floor of the property.
In order to maximise the natural lighting available to our clients inside the home, we will install a new light well above the internal staircase. This will be accompanied by a new contemporary roofline which will significantly modernise the aesthetics of the old home.
Given the parking issues experienced by our client, we will construct a new three-car garage/carport with covered access to the house. We will also introduce a new vehicular accessway towards the rear of the property.
Although renovations to the backyard will form part of an additional renovation plan, we will install a new outdoor temporary roof covering (e.g. sails) over the pavilion. This will provide our clients with an immersive outdoor experience which is perfect for relaxing or alfresco entertaining without any direct exposure to the elements.
